Rose 'Lorraine Lee'

When most roses are dormant during winter, this true phenomenon of the rose world is in full flower filling gardens with its wonderful sweet scent and colourful pinkish-apricot double blooms. Almost perpetually in flower, it’s superb as a shrub, hedge or rambling climber. Bred by renowned Australian rose breeder, Alister Clark, who wanted to produce a rose that could cope with our extreme weather conditions. He described ‘Lorraine Lee’ as better than any of his later hybrids for its colour and habit. AUSTRALIAN HEIRLOOM, C.1924.

How to grow

Plant in an open, sunny position (at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight each day), in free-draining, neutral soil that is rich in organic matter. Water deeply to encourage strong roots when establishing and provide supplementary watering during dry periods. Roses are heavy feeders and will benefit from organic fertiliser, twice-yearly in heavy soils (spring and late summer) or four times in sandy soil. Deadhead regularly for repeat flowering. Prune in late winter by a third for size and shape, creating an open vase form and removing any diseased or damaged wood.
